Untitled Romance Starring Ben Affleck & Rachel McAdams Is Starting To Be Shown For Buyers



After taking two decades off between "Days of Heaven" and the "The Thin Red Line," then another seven years until "The New World" and six more years until "The Tree of Life" which started its limited rollout this weekend, director Terrence Malick is suddenly very, very busy. Last year, he knocked out another film -- formerly known as "The Burial" -- starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper and Jessica Chastain, and he's still got the universe-spanning IMAX documentary "Voyage of Time" (which was once going to be a companion film to "The Tree of Life") in the works as well. But the 67-year-old helmer is just getting started it seems.

24 Frames has dropped a few updates on where the director is going next, and Malick fans will be thrilled. The aforementioned, untitled romance is now being shopped to buyers -- with word coming in that the early footage being screened is even more "experimental" than "The Tree of Life" -- and back in March, reshoots took place in Paris. But more than that, Malick may be getting ready to shoot another new film this summer.

Of course, details are vague-to-nonexistent at this point, but 24 Frames says that Malick's production team are being told to keep their summer and fall open for a possible shoot on a new film. The site goes on to claim "he expects to be finished with this one in a matter of months" but we'll see how it goes. Malick's lengthy and careful editing process could quickly turn months into years.

But damn, with three projects now on his slate it looks like the wait for the next film from Malick won't be so long. The untitled romance in 2012? Let's hope so. We're sure Cannes would love to have him back.

    'Experimental' / What is that supposed to mean? / There's nothing experimental about either one of these films.

    For the record, Malick wrote several comedies early in his career... and his hard-to-see short film, Lanton Mills, is reputedly a comedy: http://bit.ly/QZ3Sr

    I would also love to see Malick get in touch with his goofy Zoolander loving side. Although it would probably be hard to do that in his improvisatory style.

    At one point didn't Malick work on Jerry Lee Lewis bio and when he dropped out it turned into that Dennis Quaid film Great Balls of Fire?

    Years ago Malick was attached to a film based on the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Look it up. It would be amazing.

    what can I say, this is good news. But where are you getting the Jerry Lewis thing from?
